Create a Google Account -
like many web-based logins - You need a valid email address to create a Google Account


Option A: Create a Google Gmail Address as your Google Account Login

  • Having a Gmail account automatically gives you login accounts to all the Google applications. This is the easiest way to register!

  • But, you don't have to use Gmail's email, see Option B below.



Option B: Create a Google Account with Another Existing Email Address
  • If you as the teacher or a secondary student already have another web-based email service like Yahoo or Hotmail, you can use that address to create a Google Account. A Gmail account is only required for Gmail itself and Google Page Creator.

Option C: Use Gaggle.net or ePals to create safe student email accounts

  • As a teacher, if you are the person setting up student email accounts, we strongly recommend that you use a safe filtered email service. SDUSD Ed Tech Department recommends Gaggle.Net.
    • You or your students may never use Gaggle.net's email, but you will have a valid email address to create a valid Google Account. Gaggle.net has free email service (that does include advertising).
